Lil’ Oony

Lil’ Oondasta, the pet of choice of Tommy Newcomer… a rather sweet faced boy located on the Timeless Isle.

Little Oony is a massive pain in the bum… very similar to his grown up counter part. He looks bloomin’ amazing though, I so want one! However, the lure of 500 coins a day towards the 100k for the mount was hard to resist.

Anyway, FULL CREDIT for the strategy to beat this guy goes to @WoWRounded – link to the article here.

The technique has worked every time I have used it without fail, and only requires two pets to execute. Before I found this strategy, I was hopelessly killing pet after pet trying to figure out how to stop Oony’s Frill Blast from eating my mechanicals.

So, which pets to use?

My trusty Clockwork Gnome with Build Turret, and the Zandalari Kneebiter with Black Claw and Hunting Party. The third pet doesn’t matter as long as its health is lower than the Kneebiter. I use whichever low level pet I have to hand.


As I said, @WoWRounded’s is flawless. The article (which you should read!) explains is great detail, but condensed down is basically:

1. Start with the Gnome and Build Turret

2. Oony will swap out the Gnome for the Kneebiter, so use Black Claw then Hunting Party. This should take him down to about 20% health. If you’re lucky, Oony will miss and you’ll get another in, which will finish him off.

3. If the previous step doesn’t kill him, swap the Gnome back in and finish him off with a bash to the head.

I know this requires these two particular pets, but I use the Gnome in most fights at the moment, and the Kneebiter is really easy to get – and cheapish on the AH too.

Thank you @WoWRounded for helping me finally beat this beast!




I actually wrote this a long time ago, but it is one of the last of the Fable’s that I have left to post. As it is, I still use this set-up (albeit with a more refined understanding of the abilities), so I  hope it helps with an alternative strategy should you need it!

Greyhoof is located near Stormstout Brewery in Valley of Four Winds.

My strategy was a “try it and see” one, so perhaps there are others with more finesse. I used the pets and abilities in the order as shown above.

This guy is a bit of a DPS machine. I used anything mechanical I had (which as you can see, isn’t a lot) with the highest hitting nuke they had. My Zep was only 21 at the time, so that went first with the bomb and the rocket, the I swapped it out for the xp before it died.

After the Zep, I went in with the Gnome and used the rocket and punched it in the face til he died. Poor guy. Then, I used the Idol to demolish it til it died.

As I said, I blagged this big time, but the tactic worked and my Zep got some xp as it was (just) still alive.


Here’s my strategy for Kafi, located in Kun’lai Summit.

What would have been good here is a Tonk or Custodian, but I wanted to give an option fro those who may not have them, so I used another Life Exchange in their place, the Dragon.


He hits HARD. I used Life Exchange after his opener, which took me to 25% health, and gave me enough health to get him down to about 80% with Slicing Wind. Then, I swapped in the Gnome and used Launch Rocket 3 times before he died and Kafi was at about 10%. Finally, the Idol demolished (/giggle) him.

There are plenty of other strategies with much more finesse than mine, but it is possible to get him down with these 3 relatively easy to get pets. I hope it has given you another option to consider if you’re struggling!

Wastewalker Shu

It’s been a long time since I shared any of my pet battle tips. As always, I’m not a pro, but I hope I offer a combination that may provide help if you’re struggling!

Here’s my strategy for Mr Shu, located just outside the Klaxx’i hub.

I used these pets, with abilities shown, to counter his pets, Crusher, Pounder and Mutilator.


Crusher  came first and by using the Faerie Dragon’s Moonfire and Slicing Wind he was a gonner. With Pounder, I used Life Exchange then Slicing Wind til my Dragon was dead. Next, Pounder cast Sandstorm so I countered with Cleansing Rain on the Water Skimmer and used the other abilities til Pounder died.

Finally, Mutilator took out my poor Skimmer’s remaining health quickly, so I swapped to the Idol and punched him in the face til he died.

A relatively stress free fight with these pets. Good luck!

Ti’un the Wanderer

Here’s my strategy for beating Ti’un, found in Townlong Steppes.

Pet Setup

I actually had none of the right pets for this fight, so I employed the same tactic I used for Lucky Yi.

Here, my strategy was to cast Apocalypse and survive until it struck. So, I brought my fail-safe pets which I know I can last a few rounds of hard hitting damage with. Ti’un casts Tidal Wave a lot which deals a butt-load of damage to back row pets, so watch out.

So, starting with the Roach and Apocalypse, then swapping to the Whelpling and using heal whenever up plus the others to fill the gaps (avoiding his nuke, which you can predict as he “pumps up”, with Life Off really helped!). When the Whelpling died, I used Life Exchange on the Dragon to heal the damage from the Tidal Wave, then Moonfire and Wind until the Apocalypse hit.

You can also use a crab, which are very sturdy. Renewing Mists can take the edge off the back row damage to the pets, and  the shield can mitigate *some* of the damage.

Not an easy fight without the right pets, but as I don’t have any for a more impressive strategy, this works OK for me every time.


Here’s my strategy for this slippery character, located in Kun-Lai Summit:

This isn’t much use to anyone really, as I didn’t try to kill it using the pets… but here goes:

My strategy here, as with a couple of the other elites, was to survive long enough for Apocalypse to kill it off. I tried Nether Faerie Dragon and Life Exchange, but it didn’t work as well.

So, I used the Roach to cast Apocalypse then used the Whelpling and Lift Off to avoid Whirlpool wherever possible and heal up the other attacks. When dead, I swapped in the Skimmer for Soothe and Cleansing Rain. By the time they were both dead, Apocalypse had one round left and killed him good and proper.

Good luck!

(The not so) Lucky Yi.

So, here is my strategy for killing Lucky Yi, found just outside Halfhill.

This is a bit of a cheat I suppose, but it works fantastically every time using the pets in the order you see above, and with the abilities shown.

Firstly, use the Roach and its Apocalypse then swap it out for the Imp. All you now need to do is keep yourself alive til the Apocalypse hits and you’ll kill him.

My tactic is to cast Immolate on the Imp, to do some ticking damage then use Cauterize on cooldown to keep yourself alive. On the downtime between these two abilities, use Rush to do some damage. The Runt is there just in case of bad RNG or if you’re sleeping, but you shouldn’t need him.

After 15 rounds, the Apocalypse will hit and kill the not-so-Lucky Yi. Grats!
